Benefit Your Heart with These Foods with American Heart Month

Load up on these heart-healthy foods during American Heart Month.

February is American Heart Month! Although this month is usually associated with Valentine’s Day, it gives you an opportunity to think about your heart. Heart disease continues to be one of the leading causes of death for men and women across the States. Fortunately, this disease isn’t a given. Lifestyle factors, particularly your diet and exercise routine, can impact your heart health. Eating a well-balanced diet with heart-healthy foods can help deter heart conditions. Take a look at these healthy foods that are good for your heart.

Raw nuts and seeds

Raw nuts and seeds have been found to have a beneficial impact on many cardiovascular risk factors. They can be high in omega-3 fatty acids—which help lower the levels of cholesterol and LDL (low-density lipoproteins or “bad” cholesterol) in the blood

Leafy, green vegetables

A diet rich in leafy greens can also help reduce your risk of high blood pressure and coronary heart disease. Try picking up spinach, mixed greens, arugula, and chard on your next grocery shop.

Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a delicious, comforting, and heart-healthy way to start your day. Oatmeal is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, potassium, and folate which benefit your heart health.

Chia seeds

Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and are full of antioxidants, fiber, iron, and calcium. Not only do they help you achieve optimal heart health, but they are easy to incorporate into your diet!
